Take a look at this Cyndi Lauper video. it's for her new single 'Into The Nightlife', which has a really proper amazing chorus if you get that far.
A bit Robyn, a bit Madonna, a bit Kylie.
There's something slightly jarring and unconvincing about Cyndi's comeback/reinvention/whatever it is and it's hard to put your finger on. Is it just that she's trying to hard — a character trait which suits Madonna, but doesn't suit Cyndi? Is it the slightly overbearing For The Gays angle? We're not sure. Sorry.
